Danny Haynes and Michael Morrison scored the goals to give the struggling Addicks a vital three points and inflict a seventh straight league defeat on the Robins.

"We are not worried about the future because we believe in the players," said Docherty.

"The club was in a worse position when we took over last season and we battled our way out of it. That will happen again.

"The powers that be at the club have indicated they are behind us and there is no harder working manager than Derek so I am convinced we will turn things around.

"We have the attacking players to score goals and just need to work even harder on the training ground to achieve that elusive clean sheet.

"The players are disappointed and it was a poor day for us. But as a club we know how to get out of tight spots and one win could set us in the right direction."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
